I made a couple of chenille rugs for the bathroom in the trailer this week. I got the idea for them from Susan Tiegs at the Vintage Trailer Academy: she had done a few for her class on upholstery and curtains that I attended. It gave me the idea because the sizes are so weird (can't find a 12 inch wide rug ANYWHERE). They are 4 layers thick with 3 layers of flannel and top layer of cotton fabric. There's a good tutorial video by Nancy Ziemann if you google it on how to make chenille. I learned the hard way to make the rugs 1 inch bigger than I really wanted and cut to size after I did the channels and before I bound them.

Cool my quilting on the road

Hello Quilters - I have a couple different machines that travel well. The smallest is the Hello Kitty Janome. It sews pretty well, but my best traveler is the Janome 3160QDC. I also have a Featherweight that I'm working on getting used to.

Janome 3160
Omnigrid folding cut & press mat
Rowenta travel iron

With this setup I barely miss anything I'd have at home. Has anyone been to the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show? Where would be a good place to park the Airstream?

Hi, I have. janome Jem Platium 760 for travel. I have pieced queen size quilts. Now time to free motion quilt them. Has anyone quilted free motion on their small machines? I only stipple, nothing fancy but quilt is big. I also somehow lost the feet portion of my clear extention table for machine.

Maybe you could find a long arm to rent. In my area of the world, there is a sales place that has a long arm machine they rent out by the hour. If you happen to already know how to use one, you can skip the lessons. I haven't done it yet, but I have a friend who rents the machine set up to long arm her bigger quilts, and says it's worth the money.
I quilted a double size quilt on my regular machine last winter by setting up on a card table in the middle of my family room and quilting it. Was a hassle but I was able to do it. My sewing room at the time was not able to accommodate quilting my quilt.
Good luck!

Anyone going to the International? Unfortunately, we will not be there, but one of my quilts will. I donated a large lap quilt for a raffle to make money for the MN unit to donate to the North Dakota Peace Garden sculpture effort. The person organizing the raffle from our unit (Linda Agre) decided to bring it to the International to raffle off. You might see it there! It's not my best effort........ I just hope it raises a decent amount of money!
